Cappuccino Biscotti



The weekend is here! Time to relax and unwind. Savor tea time or coffee break with a yummy sliver of cappuccino biscotti. I particularly like biscotti because it's butter-free and it keeps well. It makes a lovely kitchen gift too.

Have a lovely weekend!

  1. Hi, since I'm not a native speaker/reader of English I might have missed something. But I wonder when and how you add the strongly brewed coffee.
    Best,
